New Music – Zhu

We don’t know if you’ve been walking about Shoreditch recently. For our sins, we have – and we’ve kept coming across this logo. Now we’re old enough and ugly enough to know we didn’t see it by accident. Someone out there is wanting to get into our collective brains! Arghh!

Once we’d calmed down enough to do some Googling we uncovered the man responsible – Zhu. Just over 12 months ago a mashup of the Outkast tracks “Ms. Jackson,” & “So Fresh, So Clean” by a seemingly unknown artist started making huge waves on EDM blogs. This was swiftly followed by an original release this time accredited simply to Zhu.

A little later the next piece of the puzzle appeared on Noisey in the form of an official video for the track “Faded” but with very little by way of extra info on the artist involved. You’ve only got to check the views on there to know that people are loving it and we are no different. Tracks across his Nightday E.P. display some very cool production that led to comparisons including Disclosure & Burial.

Now it turns out the 27.5.15 we saw on the street projections at the weekend  relates to the date of Zhu’s first ever UK show which it’s been revealed today will take place at Oval Space , E2, London. Ticket go on sale 9am Wednesday 11th March 2015 right here.
